Crossroads- Cruce De Caminos
Label: Capitol Latin
With star help in the form of Dixie Chick Natalie Maines' dad Lloyd (he produced the album), Intocable releases perhaps their most crossover-ready album yet. Never have they sounded more engaging, or less traditional: the hit "Por Ella" looks north of the border (think Tex-Mex) for inspiration, and highly unusual touches like steel guitar and banjo transform songs like "Vuelve Mi Amor" into country radio fare -- if only country radio could get past that English-language thing. A truly versatile, engaging release that puts Intocable head and shoulders above the competition.
